This week, as you may have already seen or heard about, we started our History topic – The Great Fire of London. We learned about timelines and even went into the hall to make our own human timeline! We discussed some new vocabulary:
Past: an event or something that has already happened
Now: what is currently happening
Timeline: a line that shows us events in the order that they happened
Living memory: events that we remember because we’ve experienced them
The Great Fire of London was at the beginning of our timeline, far away from recent events because it happened so long ago. Ask your child if they know when the Great Fire of London was, or even how many years ago it happened!
